No height limit for the US, but that does come up post-war for the Soviets. In order to make their tanks as volumetrically small as possible (smaller targets, less weight, less material, etc.) they took the shortest 5% of their conscripts and made them tankers. I had the opportunity (at 5'-10" at the time - I've since shrunk a bit!) to sit in the driver's seat of a T-55 - couldn't get low enough in the seat to close the hatch!

Did not know that.... And guess if your tank got hit....upon exiting with hands in the air...One could hear the pleas:" don't shoot,I'm only a kid!".
